Passwords get saved without asking for option if I do want to save the password for this site or not. So passwords for sites that I dont want saved are saved.

I am using Firefox version 28. I have ticked the option to save passwords and am using a Master password to save and protect all passwords. Of late, I have noticed that whenever a site is opened and a password is input, Firefox just saves it, without giving me the popup option of ** IF I WANT TO SAVE THE PASSWORD FOR THIS SITE OR NOT**. This is proving to be a big problem because there are sites where I do not want the passwords to be saved but since I do not get the popup option, the password get saved. I would appreciate your help in this regard.

Hi,

This regards 'Private Browsing Mode'. Its really frustrating to have the Add-ons functional even in this mode. Isn't Private meant to have "Privacy" ? Then why do the installed add-ons still appear functional even in this mode, shouldn't they be disabled?

I am trying to go to us.army.mil but the websites security certificate is not valid. It is annoying that Firefox makes me do an exception every time I go to this site or any sites that I navigate to from this site but it really is just an additional mouseclick usually. Today however, when I really need to access this site for my JOB, I am getting the normal security certificate page but when I try to confirm a security exception it tells me that the sites security certificate is valid and there is no need to add an exception. Then there is just no other way to get to the website at all. I have screen screen shots. Please help.

I'm doing my banking in private browsing and use my spreadsheet to manage my accounts. I have 5 bank accounts and 2 savings accounts that I update while doing online banking. I have two screens, it would be nice if one could be used for my spreadsheet which I do when not using private browsing. I can bring up the spread sheet in private browsing as an HTML page if I save it like that, but it's read only, cannot use it as a spread sheet.

Spam email says I've made a payment via PayPal and has some of the numbers of my credit card. Neither PayPal or my bank account shows this payment as having been made. The email asks me to reply to them if I did not make this payment. (which I did not.)

(I have not opened the email, I read the contents via View>Message Source.)

I've tried to forward the entire email as an attachment to spoof at paypal but they've sent it back and want it zipped.

I'm using Win 7, tried right clicking on the file to send it to a zip folder but I don't have that option right clicking in Thunderbird.

How can I zip this email so PayPal will take a look at it?

thanks

Security exceptions have NEVER worked correctly for me, and I'm sick of it. Someone please help with this.

First of all, I posted about this months ago, the thread can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/965352 . No personal ill-will toward the folks who responded, but none of the replies were helpful. Most were not even APPLICABLE. (This includes the final one, that I didn't respond to.)

Briefly: Occasionally, seemingly at random, a site (often one I've previously accessed with no problem) will start giving me the "This connection is untrusted" screen I'm sure you've all seen occasionally, ostensibly because of invalid security certificates, but in reality for no damn reason at all, at least not that I've ever been able to discern. I then click on the "I understand the risks => Add exception" option - unlike some others who have similar issues, I DO get this option, it's not greyed out or anything. This brings up the "Add Exception" dialog as expected, but apparently it's merely decorative, because when I click the Confirm Security Exception button at the bottom, LITERALLY NOTHING happens. The box doesn't close, no error message comes up, there is no visible change of any kind. I hope I'm being clear, when I say LITERALLY NOTHING happens I mean LITERALLY NOTHING happens.

(Sorry if that sounds condescending, but you'd be amazed at the number of times I've said something like that and the *immediate* response is something like "What did the error message say?". And looking at it from the other side, having done tech support, you'd be equally amazed at the things customers described as "nothing happening" that could not possibly be further from "nothing", including error messages that plainly spelled out what the problem was! I'm just trying to (a) avoid the first scenario, and (b) make it clear that this isn't an instance of the second one...)

To belatedly respond to the last message in the previous thread:

* I am NOT in private browsing mode
* There are no intermediate certificates involved (and even if there were, I would have no clue, based on that message, about HOW to get them). 
* Also, it's a very bad sign that this message expressed doubt about whether I had an option that my original post quite explicitly spelled out that I *did* have. Again, no personal ill-will, and I know the OP in that thread was rather long, but even so, that kind of thing makes me wonder what *else* about the problem the person responding might have misunderstood.

Anyway. Hope that's clear enough, if anything isn't, please ask. I'm happy to answer questions about my settings and whatever else might be relevant, much less happy to correct faulty assumptions after the fact. It seems that significantly more people than me have this problem, let's see if we can get it resolved once and for all.

Despite setting History settings to all history and all data, Firefox does clear all history. After quitting I find last session can be restored.

My Clear History settings are all checked, yet when I quit FF my history is not cleared. Additionally, FF hangs up and I must quit manually, but wouldn't expect manually quitting to overcome history settings.

After quitting whether manually or on the occasion FF does fulfill the quit command, I find I am able to restore the last session.

Is this a bug in FF, an incompatibility with MAC OS 10.6.8, or something else? I have not found my question answered sufficiently in the forum where a similar question was asked.

I am testing a website using selenium web driver. The particular site contains nested iframes. I cannot access content of Iframes, because of the Same Origin Policy. Therefore I disabled web security in chrome web driver and access those contents using following Jquery script.

$(‘#data’).find(‘iframe’).contents().find(‘html’) I achieved this in chrome by setting these features when it is initializing.

options.AddArguments("--allow-file-access-from-files"); options.AddArguments("--disable-web-security");

Now I need to do this in Firefox. I followed instructions in this URL. But that is not working.

about:config -> security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy -> false

I haven't got what I expected using above edits. Error was Permission denied to access property 'document'

There should be way to achieve this. I am using Firefox 29.0.1

Previously I used my Windows XP Pro system for web surfing without problems. Along the way I picked up some malware problems. I ran numerous runs and several virus cleaners and eventually got error free detection runs and followed that with a reinstall of a fresh copy of Firefox. It didn't seem to help. I still get persistent flags raised of certificate violations. The Internet Explorer does not have the same problem. Any ideas are appreciated.

edit: removed your mail address from public display, since the only thing it will attract are spam bots. you will be notified per mail once somebody replies to the thread. (philipp)
